Johnson showed Embiid whatever message was on the phone and then slid it into the pocket of his warmup trousers.

"It's my decision because I'm the one feeling the pain and it's my body", Embiid said.

Johnson issued an apology a few hours after the team's 111-102 loss. "I also apologize to my teammates, the 76ers organization and the fans for the distraction this has caused", said Johnson in a release. The rule book, under the "Use of Technology" section, says violations will "result in substantial fines and/or suspensions". He did not disclose the amount.

Coach Brett Brown did mention that we will see a "different Ben Simmons in Game 2" so that is something to look forward to as the series moves on to the next one.

Brown said he would deal with Johnson, but he declined to address any specific discipline. This season, Embiid is averaging 27.5 points, 13.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.
